3 Days of Wonder and Nostalgia in New England’s Only National Park
New England, and certainly Acadia National Park, has always held a special place in my heart. I grew up in coastal New Hampshire and some of my fondest childhood memories center around family trips to the park. It was here, my brother and I took our first flight, soaring silently above the rounded mountains of Mt. Desert Island in a glider, and to this day, a clock hangs in my parents house with a photo of my brother, myself and our cousins atop Cadillac Mountain from a trip in the early 90’s. It was here too, that I took Bryn for her first trip to New England, before we were even dating, now 20 years ago, and here we returned two years later as part of our honeymoon. And so, after a far-too-long time away, we returned again this summer to Acadia to introduce our own children to a park that holds so many of our treasured memories.
Exploring the Winding Shores and Skies of Central Georgia’s Lake Oconee
One of the many perks of being a commercial photographer is the opportunity to experience and explore some of the most beautiful parts of the world as you travel in the service of your clients. One such happy surprise was a recent trip to Lake Oconee, in central Georgia – a location that I didn’t even know existed just a few months ago. As providence would have it, we were treated to a stunning, gold-infused sunrise accented by wisps of fog still lingering from the cool pre-dawn twilight.
Sampling Multnomah Falls, Crater Lake, Olympic National Park and all the Roads in Between
So, while I was preparing yesterday’s post, I realized that I had never published part two of our adventure to the Pacific Northwest way back in early October. So, without any further delay, here’s our photos from this great adventure. Over the course of a few days, we visited Multnomah Falls, spent a day on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, did a drive-by of Mount Rainier, and took a day trip along the volcanic range, stopping along Continue reading →
New Horizons and Some Spectacular Mornings in Portland
A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of heading out to the Pacific Northwest for the first time – traveling to Portland, OR to shoot for two of our regular clients. It was a wonderful, albeit quick trip to the Left Coast. Today is our first of two posts from the trip – this time focusing on the city of Portland and a pair of rather stunning Continue reading →
Happy New Year! We thought we would kick things off with a little play on words – Thankfully the sunrise on the first day of 2015 was actually rather spectacular as it rose over Whaleback Light off the coast of New Castle, NH (below). The fowl we referred to is this snowy owl (above), who I’ve been tracking for a few days, trying to get the perfect shot. Coastal New England is not the normal habitat for these arctic birds, but occasionally, what’s called an irruption occurs, where birds go far beyond their normal habitat in search of ample food supplies. With snowy owls, its not uncommon for the birds to then return to the destination of their irruption year after year, as is the case with this pair who first arrived about this time last year.
